The SLC raised $425 in the BBQ this arvo to support Alex Atata in his quest to play representative rugby overseas. We cooked 15 kg of snags and sold out in 25 mins. If you see any of the following kids give them a pat on the back for their efforts:

Jackson Balmer, Sammy Skulley, Maya Wilson, Natasha Lycette, Charlotte Officer, Sarah Beccari, Kalani Robinson, Saffron/Rosie Grech.





SLC Fundraising Drive

The Student Leadership Council is promoting a fundraising drive to help support Year 10 student Alex Ataata in his quest to join the Victorian Schoolboys Rugby Union team on their tour to UK, Ireland, Belgium and France later this year. Unfortunately, the tour is quite expensive ($7000) so we are encouraging the school community to get behind Alex to help him meet the cost of the trip. The SLC is organising a fundraising bbq and a bake sale but if people in the school community would like to make a personal donation they can contact Year 10 Coordinator Baden Small or Assistant Principal Margaret Fry.


Alex Ataata profile

Alexander has always loved being outdoors. His love for the outdoors resulted in him being enrolled at Ponsonby Ponies Rugby Club in Auckland, New Zealand in 2007 as a 7 year old. After his first year of playing rugby union, he left rugby to pursue kickboxing. In the last few years of primary before switching to rugby league, Alexander was reintroduced to rugby union and represented his school, Waikowhai intermediate in 2012 and 2013. In his last year of intermediate Alexander was then asked to trial and had been selected for the central Auckland Bill McLaren team.

After the Bill McLaren tournament some of the coaches of high schools were interested in his rugby skills which resulted in him being asked to join two of the top schools in Auckland. Mount Albert Grammar school’s first XV coach and St Peters first XV coach both requested Alexander's attendance at their schools as well as joining their rugby academies. Alexander then played in the U14’s A grade Auckland competition before moving to Australia. Alexander was also selected in the Victorian Indigenous squad as well as the Northern knights indigenous team earlier this year for AFL also. Alexander’s aspires to play rugby union or league at a professional level, and to be a youth worker.


Nasteho at the E with a footy legend


Nasteho Hashi, one of Princes Hill's Fitzroy based female football players, is proudly pictured above with Tayla Harris, the AFL star from the recent female AFL Melbourne - Footscray match. This match was televised live to a huge audience, out rating the Essendon - Adelaide match, and showcased the sublime skills and  tenacity of the women players, leading to calls for the establishment of a national women's league. We're all looking forward to watching  Nasteho perform out there on the big stage in a couple of years time.




Australian Open Taekwondo Champion


In June this year Kyah English represented her club and Australia at the 2015 Taekwondo Australian Open. Kyah’s first bout was against a New Zealand national team member and she came out on top with the win. Kyah’s next bout was against another Australian athlete and took another win sending her to the finals were she was to face another Australian competitor. After a tight opening 2 rounds Kyah came home strongly and was rewarded with becoming the Australian Open Champion of 2015 in her division.





Hearing it from "The horses mouth".... the senior school subject expo


Last Friday the library at Princes Hill hosted an important event on the counseling calendar. All current year 10 students were provided with an opportunity to talk to senior students about the nature of their courses and to pose any questions that had yet to be addressed as they finalised their subject selections. Teachers offering new subjects were also in attendance to provide details of their programs. A big thanks to all the Year 11 students who carried out their advisory role in a thoroughly professional manner, and to the staff who provided their time in this process.
